Each SIG is responsible for it's own spin so to get this included you 
need to bring this up on the Desktop list and the people that are 
responsible for the Desktop spins are the Gnome developers thus I would 
say if they rejected this in the first place they will reject this again.

The only option I see for people that want to use desktop extension like 
the one you mention and frippery etc is to create their own spin and 
maintain it.

Should not require more work than going through the spin process.

So basically just go through the process duplicate the ks file for the 
live desktop and add to it the extension
